As is true in every generation, the fundamental problems facing our society are spiritual in nature. Unconverted people will produce a culture that is opposed to our Creator. Moreover, believers who have temporarily lost their zeal for Christ will not be effective ambassadors of Him. As a result, people will not hear the gospel, God’s Word will not be applied to all of life, and the culture will remain darkened.
The only solution is for God to give us an awakening. On March 8-10, 2018, Ligonier Ministries is hosting our annual national conference in Orlando, Fla., centered around the theme of “Awakening.” Our goal will be to help believers understand the importance of awakening and the way the Lord brings it about so that we might be used by God to be the means of a new awakening today. Rosaria Butterfield, Kevin DeYoung, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steve Lawson, Al Mohler, Steve Nichols, Burk Parsons, Joni Eareckson Tada, Derek Thomas, and I will teach on subjects including awakening in Scripture and history, the means of awakening, the signs of an awakened church, and several others.
As always, this conference promises to be a time of great encouragement and edification as we gather with Christians from many places to fellowship with one another, to worship our triune God, and to study His Word. Please consider joining us next spring as we look to understand this vital subject. Thank you.
